After months of speculation as to who will succeed Alber Elbaz, Bouchra Jarrar has been confirmed as Lanvin's new artistic director. She starts her new job on Monday and will only see to the womenswear collection for the French fashion house.

"Her timeless style is in keeping with the style and values of our company," Lanvin CEO Michèle Huiban told WWD. "Her talent, her high standards and her mastery of cuts and fabrics will bring a breath of freshness and modernity into the house, while respecting its soul as the oldest Paris couture house, a symbol of French elegance."

Jarrar's first collection for Lanvin will make its debut during the Spring Summer 2017 runway season, which runs later this year. The brand has operated without a creative or artistic director since Alber Elbaz's departure in October 2015.
